Candy Corn

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Candy Corn<br>Finalist - September 2011
Candy Corn
Finalist - September 2011

*Details and Macro*
Canon EF 100mm macro lens f/25 1/8 sec (tripod and cable release) ISO 250 12mm extension tube
This is decorative, variegated colored corn or sometimes referred to as Indian Corn.
Its bright colors remind me of candy although I would prefer to eat mine without the fine dust.

Gorgeous colors, comp and detail Heather! I must go down the road to visit one of the local farms. He grows tons and tons of the colored corn for the hunters up north.

The color and detail are fantastic Heather, right down to the dust. We see this kind of corn in the fall used as fall decorating. Not sure if it is edible or not. Maybe more like field corn, animals eat it but not humans? We used to call it Indian corn.

Excellent Autumn macro, Heather! Love the "Indian maize" colors and your beautiful diagonal composition.
Carol's come up with a very cool idea: multi-colored popcorn! Kids would love it, and so would quite a few of us grown-ups. Somebody should get on the stick at Orville's factory about that!

Wonderful macro shot Heather with excellent dof to render the ears so sharp. It's the outstanding color that engages the viewer. I've never actually seen these variety in person. So cool!

Sorry that I missed this gorgeous image earlier, but thanks to BP PhotoFlash #103, I got a second chance. It's all wonderful, but it's those jewel-tone kernels that keep drawing me in. Congratulations on such a beautiful creation.
